Default Need Help!

Hi all,
I have a small problem. I have a PC 690 router that is currently residing in it's plunge base. It's been in there for a while and now it won't come out and even though I could probably leave it there, I would like to use it in the standard base. I've been using a Bosch 1617 and a DeWalt for most of my routing needs, but an occasion arose where the 690 in the standard base would of been helpful. Any ideas on how to remove it without causing any damage? Thanks in advance.

when you put in the plung base did you put it all the way in Like no space between the base and the motor The locking piece with the allen bolt ? If no space You have to take the allen bolt all the way out and let the little piece fall out and the motor will come out When the 2 are put togother their need's to be about 1/4" of space so when you loosen the allen bolt the locking piece will let go and the motor will fall down in the 1/4" space Than pull the motor out good luck

Thanks for the tip. I managed to remove it and found that a lot of debris had accumulated which compounded the problem. I guess I'll have to be more careful in keeping it clean
